Volunteer Sally Brown hard at work before the museum opens in the morning….

If you have been in to the museum recently you will have seen it beginning to be transformed, forward in time to Christmas, and back to Tudor times.

Volunteers are in the museum each morning, before opening time, to start putting the decorations up. Sophia Sample and Sally Brown have been paramount in creating the green swags, table and window decorations. Mary Crane and an enormous team of stitchers have produced Tudor Roses which now find their moment, as you can see…

More than a dozen stitchers, some anonymous, have contributed their time and expertise to produce these unique decorations
Mary Crane and Pam Balchin begin the dressing of the King’s Room
